Ben Youngs relishing Wales battle
Ben Youngs has described England’s Six Nations showdown against Wales at Twickenham on March 12 as an ‘almighty game’.
Eddie Jones’ England kept their Grand Slam hopes on track with a third successive win in this year’s tournament as they comfortably defeated reigning champions Ireland 21-10 in South West London.
Saturday’s success made it three wins out of three for England under the Aussie and left the men in white top of the standings heading into their potential title decider against Wales in a fortnight’s time.
Leicester and England scrum-half Youngs said: “Wales are consistently a good team in this tournament. Traditionally they get better as the tournament goes on.
“Their coaching staff have been together for a number of years now and likewise their players. We’ve got a bit of catching up to do over the next two weeks, but we’re at home and we’re looking forward to an almighty game.
“I’ll worry about the Grand Slam when the whistle has gone after the final game, but we’re in a good place, there’s no denying that. We’re three from three and right where we want to be.
“It was great to get our campaign underway at Twickenham. We know what’s coming next time we’re here.”
